LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ No action will be taken against two bail
bondsmen, pending the outcome of a Lonoke criminal case against
them. The Arkansas Professional Bail Bondsmen Licensing Board
considered whether to impose emergency license suspensions on Bobby
Cox and Larry Norwood, but decided to take no action for now. Cox
and Norwood were arrested Monday along with Jay Campbell, who was
police chief at the time; Campbell's wife, Kelly Harrison Campbell;
and Lonoke Mayor Thomas Privett.
Privett faces a misdemeanor charge of theft of services,
involving the use of state prisoners being held in the local jail.
The other four were charged with felonies. Cox and Norwood are
accused of conspiring to make methamphetamine.
